Colorado’s Attorney General John Suthers is considering a run for Colorado Springs mayor in 2015.

Rumors have swirled for months that Suthers has been talking with Colorado Springs business leaders about a possible run.

“I am very fortunate that I have lots of options,” Suthers, 62, told reporter Andrea Sinclair during a recent interview about the Colorado Bureau of Investigations.

“I am considering a run for mayor, and I will make up my mind in September,” he said.

Suthers was appointed as Attorney General in 2005 to fill the seat of Ken Salazar, who was elected to the U.S. Senate. He won the seat in 2006 and 2010.

Colorado Springs elected its first strong mayor, Steve Bach, in 2010.
